Waterford – New London, CT & RI Medical Malpractice Injury Lawyers
We entrust doctors with the most vital of tasks: saving our lives. But that trust must be earned, and when a doctor fails to live up to the standards of the profession, the results can be life–changing, disabling, and fatal. If your life has been shattered by a doctor’s error, we can help you prepare for the future. At Polito & Harrington, we strive to restore our clients’ peace-of-mind.
Handling Complex CT & RI Medical Malpractice Claims Against a Complex Industry
The medical industry is subject to heavy regulations, and the practice of medicine is extraordinarily complex. We bring focused attention to detail, and work with experts from many fields in order to support your medical malpractice injury case in CT & RI. We handle issues such as:
- Surgical Errors: It is not uncommon for a surgeon to accidentally “knick” an artery or vital organ during surgery. But surgeons must respond properly to keep the damage from spreading. Sometimes, they don’t. In more severe errors, surgeons have operated on the wrong body part entirely.
- Failure to Diagnose: It is not always easy to tell what’s happening inside a patient’s body. But if a doctor misses the clear symptoms of breast cancer, a heart attack or a stroke, the patient could die, needlessly.
- Birth Injuries: Birth is a traumatic event with a high potential for life–threatening complications. Medical malpractice can lead to shoulder dystocia, cerebral palsy or Erb’s palsy, which affect the child’s entire life.
Of course, medical malpractice takes many more forms than can be listed here. If you or a loved one were injured by a doctor’s mistake, we encourage you to speak with a medical malpractice injury lawyer in CT or RI as soon as possible, whether or not it is with our CT personal injury firm.
